Oscar Pistorius' neighbours replicates 'his crying'

Two of Oscar Pistorius' nearest neighbours said they heard a man crying loudly on the night the athlete shot his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

They also said they did not hear a woman screaming, contradicting earlier testimonies from other neighbours.

In court Rita Motshuane, one of the athlete's neighbours, attempted to demonstrate the cry that she said that she heard.

The witnesses were called by Mr Pistorius' defence team to testify at his murder trial, as it seeks to prove he shot his girlfriend by mistake.

He denies intentionally killing Ms Steenkamp on 14 February last year.
